They are among the most risky shark species-second only to great white sharks in recorded attacks on humans. Costa Rica's Ministry of Environment and Energy called the incident rare and characterized it as an isolated incident, USA Today said.

Bhandari was one of the senior directors at WL Ross & Co.

Bhandari was well-known in New York's charity world, according to the New York Daily News.
